#44/100 Reasons I Blog4Peace/a woman for president?

 

 In 1872 Victoria C. Woodhull was the first woman to run for president with Frederick Douglass for as vice president !

Wow , Why did I just hear about this ? I would surely remembered if they would have told that in our so called History books of the 60's and 70's ?

What kind of world could we be now if that had happened then?

This woman was so awesome ,gutsy , so smart she scared the folks of her time . She went to jail and was there on election day for speaking her mind !

Where is that kind of candidate now ?

I have to admit trying to come up with 100 reasons to blog for peace , can be interesting.

I am learning about people that strive for Peace and equality for the world . I also learn about the people that have fought to make this world more peaceful !

You can go to this link and find out a lot about this amazing event in history we missed out on because American Monopoly had already started by then too or search her name ! guaranteed good read.

If you spliced the genes of Hillary Clinton, Madonna, Heidi Fleiss and Margaret Thatcher, you might have someone like Victoria Woodhull.

"The truth is that I am too many years ahead of this age and the exalted views and objects of humanitarianism can scarcely be grasped as yet by the unenlightened mind of the average man."
-- Victoria Woodhull, to a reporter after losing the 1892 election.

Are there other Victoria's out there? Or Vick' I just want someone that will stand up for the people that need it most ! 

till next time 

May Peace and Blessings be upon You.

  1. Ha, how funny. I was thinking something along these lines yesterday. I was on this site with stuff about American history (which, as a none american is hazy for me - I know the civil war via TV shows and that's about it!)

    So I'm looking at this page of famous women in US history and I got thinking... what happened? 100-200 years ago you guys were the movers and shakers of women's liberation and equality. and now? Now it seems like more girls dream of having perfect hair than running the country.

    Oh and here's where I was browsing. Very cool site!
